to OP:
check that your firewall is not blocking the executable -- Comodo can
be really aggressive with applications it thinks are bad.

Another idea is that if you have a firewall that has an "allow all"
setting, check that.

Also, check to make sure that your antivirus is not interferring with
the installer.
